Jorge Penado is a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania who majored in International Relations and Modern Middle Eastern Studies. His main areas of study are global migration and the policy implications of emerging technologies. His experiences in Latin America (both personally and throughout family) and his fluency in Spanish have shaped her interest in the flow of migration and the various implications of the rule of law. In the Summer of 2018, Penado was an intern for the International Narcotics & Law Enforcement under the State Department's Embassy in Lima, Peru where he researched issues of Venezuelan immigration into Peru and drafted various department-wide reports on his department's activities in the country. In 2017, he interned as an assistant at the Mexican Consulate in Philadelphia, PA where he served as an administrative assistant, translator and event planner for the general Mexican population in the city. Additionally, in 2016, he served as an assistant and translator for the Alliance for Multicultural Community Services where he served the Cuban refugee population, alongside other communities.
